Pair Program Volunteer Application

Thank you for your interest in the No Worries Now Pair Program! Completed volunteer applications and recommendations are due Friday, April 19th, by midnight, and can be submitted using the form below or by e-mailing answers to the below questions to krishan@noworriesnow.org.

Please note that each pair will be made up of one volunteer and one patient. This application form is for volunteers. If you are a patient, please apply using the patient application form.

Volunteers: Your application should include one or more recommendations from an adult who knows you well and can objectively assess your character and maturity. Your recommender does not need to know you in an academic or professional setting. This can be a teacher, advisor, activity supervisor, coach, family friend, or anyone else of your choosing. The recommender should submit his or her letter separately online using the Pair Program Recommender Form or can send us the letter via e-mail. No paper submissions, please.

You will be notified whether you have been selected for an interview by April 21. Interviews will be held April 26th-28th, at a location to be announced. Finalists will be assigned an interview time and notified in advance. Interviews are mandatory for all finalists. If you are not available to be interviewed in person on the date assigned, please notify us in advance and we will try our best to accommodate you.

Applicants will be notified of their acceptance to the program by May 1st.
